The Choice has a Dark Side

2016 Election

2016 Election

In late 1996, Bob Woodward (one of the Washington Post reporters who broke the Watergate story) wrote The Choice, about how Bill Clinton won re-election in 1996. It was the classic story of political power, money, public opinion polls, handlers, and consultants.

According to Woodward, after the Democrats lost Congress in 1994, along with other political setbacks, President and Mrs. Clinton invited a small group of self-help authors and leaders of the New Age human-potential movement to Camp David for insight and inspiration. Afterward, Mrs. Clinton continued contact with one particular member of the group, psychic and astrologer Dr. Jean Houston.

Woodward explained, “Three of the attendees were well-known:  Anthony Robbins, author of ‘Awaken the Giant Within’; Marianne Williamson, author of ‘A Return to Love’; and Stephen R. Covey, author of ‘The Seven Habits of Highly Successful Effective People’. Their names later leaked out publicly and all three declined to discuss the substance of the meeting.  The identities of the two others did not leak, and they were the ones who played a significant role over the weekend and the year that followed.”

“The first was Jean Houston, co-director of the Foundation for Mind Research, which studies psychic experience and altered and expanded consciousness.  Houston, then 55, the author of 14 books, was one of the most high-energy seminar leaders in the country.  She was a believer in spirits, mythic and other connections to history and to other worlds.”

Dr. Houston became Hillary’s “spiritual adviser” and …

had many meetings and overnight stays in the White House in 1994 and 1995. During these stays, she led the First Lady in vivid mental techniques and “imagined dialogs” with Eleanor Roosevelt and even one of Mrs. Clinton’s heroes, Indian leader Mahatma Gandhi. These experiences can only be understood as actual spiritualist séances.

The White House went into “spin cycle” and George Stephanopoulos, who was then the senior adviser to the President, said it was common for White House figures to ponder history and imagine what their predecessors might have done in trying situations. He suggested Woodward’s reports were “titillating” exaggerations, offered in the marketing of his book about the White House.

However, “visualizing” an imaginary conversation with someone still does not result in “dialogues”; only an actual séance would produce a dialogue with the dead. This dark and dangerous practice is known as necromancy and is forbidden in the Bible. If Mrs. Clinton had supposed dialog with the “dead,” she was actually talking to demons!

One can only wonder if these occult occasions continued in these past 20 years. And, if they have, how might this “dark magic” explain some of her bizarre actions, anger, and attitudes, for which she has become notorious?
